they may get a deal on immigration. >> yeah. the moment feels a little bit different. john mccain said on sunday we have to do something about the latino vote. president obama won 71% in the election a few months ago. he said today, the president is to unveil his own plan for immigration reform and will do that in las vegas. in nevada, a state where hispanicses makes.27% of the population, comes a day after a bipartisan group of eight senators reached a compromise how to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform. included in that bill, a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers currently in this country. >> other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk opposing immigration reform than supporting it. >> the what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality, what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too

, make the grade, then you get to go out. you get to go out and -- to fight. >> so we were -- john mccain was talking about that it was the right thing to do. i stated really my view, it's the right thing to do, as long as the standards are maintained. and i go back to one of the greatest pieces, i think, written about the iraq war, when you were talking about those marines going down the stairwell, one by one, getting shot, and another one going down, getting shot, and another going down, and this continued until they got to their buddies and were able to drag them to safety. any concerns with all the combat that you've seen that women put into certain circumstances might not be physically up to doing the same job that those marines did? >> i think there are probably, you know, plenty of women probably can't make the greade, probably can't do it. but probably plenty of men can't either. if you're a guy and sign up for the infantry, or take the extreme case, and say, i want to be in the special forces, most of them can't make it, because, you know, they can't do it. so i think as l

republicans, rand paul, ron johnson and john mccain looked so pathetic. and to me, there's something called decorum. and when rand paul sits there and to the second highest ranking official in our country and someone who has done a spectacular job says i would have had your job, that's pathetic. that's the amateur hour. and that's the republicans. >> willie. >> he's got a right to challenge her on it. he's not supposed to sit there. >> that is nir jtheir job. >> and just celebrate you. >> i would have relieved you of your duty? >> that's an idiot. >> kelly o'donnell, you were up on the hill yesterday. aside from all the fireworks, we saw some good pieces of videotape there. did we learn anything new actually about what happened on september 11th in benghazi? is there any new information to come out of that hearing? >> well, there were some threads and details that were interesting, i thought. secretary clinton talked about the fact that they did not have access to the surveillance video that showed what went on for a period of weeks. i think most of us thought that they had been watc

romney in many ways and john mccain in many ways was too moderate for some people during that campaign, will they now change course and swing toward the middle? >> you know, mika, sarah palin represented, as willie said, really she represented republican resentment. now, so did ronald reagan. >> right. >> but ronald reagan knew how to follow through on that. i always, when i saw those "w" stickers especially in the northeast back in 2004, i died laughing and i love it had because a "w" sticker on the back of your car in the northeast was like sticking your middle finger up to elites. east coast -- trust me, as a republican, i can tell you. i would look at them, and i would die laughing. it was just great. and it was that sort of republican resentment. but you know what? he knew how to close the deal. bush knew how to close the deal. reagan knew how to close the deal. republican resent -- it's just like they say in washington if you're paranoid, you know, what is the saying? just because you're paranoid doesn't mean everybody isn't out to get you. well, we republicans have a re

. obviously, john mccain and lindsey graham are on the forefront and have shaped republican foreign policy for a few years. certainly john mccain has. he is in a shrinking minority. and it's shrinking very quickly. and i suspect you're going to see a return to the realism of colin powell of dr. brzezinski, of brent scowcroft, of george h.w. bush, of the republicans who helped us and democrats who helped us through that approach when the cold war. >> and this is the post-superpower era, where there has to be some pulling back, and david said it exactly right. >> i wouldn't say post-superpower. you're right, it's a new era. it's much more indirection in our application of power. the neocons are for direct use of power. this will have to be more indirect. >> and there may be surprises there, as always is the case. look at what happened with algeria and mali. >> dr. zbigniew brzezinski, dad, thanks for not waking me up, by the way. >> in "the hill." >> yes, in "the hill." you would have been obliterated. david gregory, thank you very much. bob woodward, stay with us if you can. we'll be right back
